“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Raimondo said at a news conference Friday. “That risk is called New York City.”Apparently New York governor Andrew Cuomo is taking exception to the Governor Raimondo’s actions, saying “I don’t believe it’s medically justified.”
The state police in Rhode Island have begun pulling over cars with New York plates. Raimondo says anyone from New York City found to have recently come into the state will be automatically quarantined for 14 days.
Not medically justified? Hey, Andy. There are 44,000 people in your largest city who have tested positive for the virus. The only thing in this situation that might not be medically justified is building a wall surrounding the Big Apple and turning it into one big hospital ward. Or perhaps some kind of Escape from New York prison.Of course none of this will matter if President Trump quarantines parts of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
